On April 28th and 29th, 2012, Living Beyond Breast Cancer will host its Sixth Annual Conference for Women Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer which is a one-of-a-kind educational program designed for women living with metastatic disease, caregivers and healthcare providers. During the four weeks before the event, the LBBC blog will feature a series of short videos featuring our own Elyse Spatz Caplan, Director of Programs and Partnerships, with Advocacy in Action discussing the needs of women living with metastatic breast cancer.
This second video tackles semantics and word choice with the metastatic breast cancer community, particularly the word “survivor.”

Additional resources can be found through LBBC’s Understanding Guides: Metastatic Breast Cancer Series. Later this year, LBBC will produce a guide for women newly diagnosed with advanced disease.
